No, it won't run on Pi Zero. It's because of the hardware. The Pi zero and the first-generation Pis (BCM2835) use ARMv6. The Pi2 (BCM2836) uses ARMv7.
Windows 10 IoT Core needs ARMv7.
If I'm going to explain it to a layman, I'll say "The CPU is different".

There are the following ways:
1.) Set the app as default app via the Webbrowser
2.) Via a PowerShell connection (MS IoT Github). When connected, type
iotstartup add headed HelloRaspi
where HelloRaspi is the name of the app and headed means that it has a user interface.
If your looking for a simple REST service for a windows universal app, take a look at this github project:
There is also a nuget package for it:

OK so I finally got it...
this is what worked for me with only deploying one (1) Headless app.
Step1: Open Powershell as Administrator
Step2: Connect to the board with this command: net start WinRM ... NOTE I had an Ethernet cable directly from my laptop to the raspberry pi 2 board. NOTE if you've been running VS already, it'll tell you ...
They way I view Windows IoT currently is that it allows you to make your Raspberry Pi serve as an output device for your C# binaries created in Visual Studio.
There's no desktop environment, only a command shell. The only way to install any program is to write an App for it (or use an App which was written by someone else).
The official instruction is this:...
Windows 10 IoT is intended to be an "embedded" operating system. So not an OS on its own (like Raspbian is), but more a set of functions and procedures that allow you, the developer, to turn the Raspberry Pi into a custom device, using "familiar" Windows10 programming principles, augmented with access to all the GPIO peripherals connected to the rPi. Let's ...
This article on suchan.cz describes how to access several system details in a UWP application:
current OS family - phone/desktop/...
current OS build number - 10.0.10240.16413
current OS architecture - x86/x64/ARM
current App Display Name - Battery Tile for instance
current App Version - 188.8.131.52
current Device manufacturer - Nokia
The official RPF Dongle uses the Broadcom BCM43143 Chipset.
The official dongle will work. If you don't have the official dongle but your dongle is based on the Broadcom BCM43143 chipset it might work. If it is based on anything else it will not work.
From Microsoft's 'Windows For Business' pages:
There is a SKU ‘Windows 10 IoT Core’ available at no royalty cost for
all our device makers that enables automatic OS updates via Windows
Update when connected to the internet.
In addition, we also have an OEM exclusive SKU ‘Windows 10 IoT Core
Pro’ which provides an ability to defer and ...
A code sample is right there on Adafruit website (in Python, but it's very simple).
The TCA9548A multiplexer is interesting in that it has an I2C address (0x70 by default) - and you basically send it a command to tell it which I2C multiplexed output you want to talk to, then you can address the board you want to address.
So, you'll need to select the ...
When you have the source of an application (for example a program written in C) when it is compiled, the source is transformed into executable statements that the central processing unit (CPU) of the computer understands. Windows machines typically understand Intel/AMD processor instructions while the Raspberry Pi is based on the ARM processor and runs ARM ...
I had this problem too, it never got past that boot screen. It turned out it was a power supply problem. Pi 3 requires 2 A, and I had a 1.5 A micro USB adapter. When I switched to a 2 A adapter it worked as expected.
i2c does not need usually conversion, because its an open-drain bus, practically all modern 5V devices understand 3V3 logic. In either case, it is safe to use without any converters in most cases. However, the open drain configuration requires pullup resistors.
The operating voltage of i2c bus is set by a pullup resistor. Proper pullups are critical.
You may need to use this code
public IPAddress GetIPAddress()
List<string> IpAddress = new List<string>();
var Hosts = Windows.Networking.Connectivity.NetworkInformation.GetHostNames().ToList();
foreach (var Host in Hosts)
string IP = Host.DisplayName;
IPAddress address = IPAddress.Parse(...
The Raspberry Pi does not have an onboard RTC (Real Time Clock).
This means that when the Pi is powered off, and back on again, it thinks that it is the same time as when it was powered off. (Assuming is has a fake-hwclock which most OS's contain.) Because it does not have a clock that ticks while it is off.
There are two ways to combat this:
1. NTP [...
Win 10 IoT core differs quite much from "desktop" windows. It's highly likely that typical windows games will not run as is. Lets call that a reduced feature set.
Linux applications can be run if their binaries are provided for the ARMv7 architecture or if you can obtain the source and compile it yourself on the Pi or cross-compile it for the Pi. Obviously ...
You are running Windows IoT core on the Pi.
You can use Visual Studio Community to develop in a range of languages for the Pi on IoT.
With C# you get the benefit of remote dubugging which is really usefull, and requires no setup (which is fantastic) - You do have a few flavours though, and Pi is slightly limited, in sense of multi app but fully capable of ...
I am sorry to say that UWP will not run on anything but Windows 10.(It is universal for any Windows 10 device... not truly a universal OS solution :( ) The portability was intended for Windows 10 devices only. It depends on the Windows Runtime (WinRT) which the API is only available on Windows 10 at the moment.
But there is this project called C#/XAML for ...
You better switch to Raspbian as without Windows PC it is completely useless. You need Microsoft Visual Studio installed on a Windows 10 PC to install and run packages.
As far as the usefulness is concerned you will not find any prebuild packages to run, you have to create your own software using Visual Studio IDE which is based on Universal windows ...
At the moment you can only run Core on Rasbperry Pi 3+
The reason is that Windows IoT core is targeted at low cost, open source or educational embedded devices and only allows a single UWA kiosk like application to run on it. Its free and easy to use if you are a C# house.
Windows IoT Enterprise is basically Windows Embedded with a new name and is the "IoT"...
It looks like you are asking for a tailored solution for your DiY project. Well I think the following links can point you to right direction as these are tutorials for interfacing RaspPi to Azure IoT hub service.
Its very detailed and will certainly provide the barebones of your project :
Two years passed and Azul systems (as I understand not without the help from Microsoft) developed Java for Win 10 Iot
Not much is known about the performance/stability yet.
The answer is indeed "Nope".
Microsoft Windows is a bit more "closed off" so I wouldn't sit around and wait for Java to come to IoT any time soon. If you want Java, go with a Linux distro like Raspbian.
Regarding your added note:
In the same analogy, you are coming to a swimming pool asking if you could surf here, because you were a surfer for 15 years ...
I've been using Raspberry pi model B with Raspbmc during 2 years playing 1080 and 3D movies (20GB file) from a DLNA server conected to the same switch without any issue. Now the distro is called OSMC.
You can also implement projects like Hyperion - Raspbmc+Hyperion ;-)
